U.S. lifts laptop ban on passengers flying with Etihad, Emirates and Turkish Airlines
Effective immediately, Etihad Airways, Emirates Airline and Turkish Airlines have all been cleared to allow customers to bring electronic devices, including laptops, tablets and e-readers, on flights from the Middle East into the U.S.
That still leaves another six airlines, each of which remains subject to the ban.
The department of Homeland Security initiated the ban in March. It came into effect covering all flights to U.S. destinations from 10 airports in the Middle East, including major travel hubs like Dubai, Abu Dabi and Dohar. ■
